Things like this make me smile. It reminds me that for all the evil in the world, there is so much good and plenty of do-gooders out there.
This appeals to me, what 48in48 is doing.
Maybe I can’t be on the frontlines stopping Human Trafficking, but I can lend my talents to help create a website for the organizations who are out there in the trenches making a difference. Or maybe since I’m a busy mom working to pay bills, I can’t hi the streets regularly to feed the homeless, but I can help the local homeless shelter design a logo.
Over the years I have often enjoyed working behind the scenes to power troops on the frontlines for quite a few churches, ministries and non-profits. I wrote about doing this for one of Greg Laurie’s Harvest outreaches in Philadelphia.
48in48 takes this to a whole new level. They recruit volunteer coders who collectively meet for an appointed time and set date to “give” within 48-hours specifically. (Did you really think it was just one person creating 48 websites in 48-hours?)
Wow, what synergy. I bet that gathering is full of buzz and adrenaline.
And they want to do this in 48 cities around the world. How cool is that!
And I love their slogan, “It’s our code.”
It reminds me of the TV Show Dexter unfortunately (my hubby happens to be bringing on Dexter reruns this month – he had a “code” as to who he would kill and not kill).
